My brother has an old diesel engine driving a pump which we need to ID before we pull it for reconditioning.

All I know is it's a 6 cylinder, factory turbo from an old british bus. I suspect it's a Leyland or BMC. Intake and exhaust manifolds on the same side of the head (right hand side) with the turbo forward mounted.

Powerwise I think it's between 100-200hp but most of those horses have long since bolted. I've found some references to 5.7 litre 6 cylinder BMC engines (similar format to the cummins 6BT) and am wondering if anyone knows enough to confirm or deny.

Any help appreciated.

the rolls royce units were NON cross flow (in /ex same side)
cummins b/c are cross flow (in LH / ex RH ) commers have a scavenger pump and are a pancake engine
some daimlers used renamed jimmy 6-71s which are non cross flow but DO have a scavenger pump

Got it. Moved to the Perkins section because it's a Perkins 6.354 probably a -2 model due to the rope seals around the crank.

Anyone got any leads on parts? Looking for a cylinder liner/piston/ring kit.

I'm also looking for the service manual for it. We have one but it has been through the wars and isn't usable. Was in a building which caught fire, the water used to put out the fire has glued all the pages together.
